WSJ: To question, “Could Texas become a blue state?” Gov. Rick Perry “emits a hearty guffaw”
“The University of Texas will change its colors to maroon and white before Texas goes purple, much less blue.”
Gov. Perry was in D.C. Friday and Saturday. He met with Republican governors, most of whom – but not Perry – also attended the winter meeting of the National Governors Association, which included a Sunday night dinner at the White House. (Perry returned home Saturday.)
The Wall Street Journal interview with Perry noted that, “Many political pollsters and demographers predict the state could get wobbly sooner than many Republicans think, possibly going blue by as early as 2020.
“Gov. Perry rejects that notion with his own version of “Remember the Alamo.” Why?
“It’s because of freedom,” he says. “People in Texas truly aspire to freedom. They don’t want government coming in and telling them how much of this or how much of that.”
“At heart, he argues, there’s just something about Texas. “Democrats are about government getting bigger and bigger and government providing more and more,” he says. “Texans have never been for that, and Texans never will.”
Not so fast
Not everyone in the Texas GOP shares Perry’s sure confidence.
At Real Clear Politics, Scott Conroy visited Austin and reports that, “While the knee-jerk reaction among many Republicans would be to dismiss the idea that the state could be competitive in 2016 — just four years after Mitt Romney carried it by 16 points over President Obama — Texas GOP Chairman Steve Munisteri is in no mood to sneer.
“In an interview with RCP, Munisteri said that he has long taken seriously the possibility that Texas could become a battleground as early as 2016, particularly if Hillary Clinton becomes the Democratic standard-bearer.
Today I watched the first Formula 1 car race in this year’s season. Many ask me why I like this so much. Well, the answer is pretty simple, It is a race, one-driver-against-another, but at the same time it is a team sport.
Every Team, let’s say Red Bull Racing who holds the current world championship, has two drivers in the field who compete against each other and both drivers also fight for the so called Team-Championship.
In every race the drivers collect points and also the team collects points for technical improvements based on placing’s of the drivers. So it is just normal that at a certain point, when it is obvious a certain driver can’t win the world championship anymore (based on the collected points) he takes one for the team, protects the leading racer, and keeps the competitors back no matter if he likes his team partner or not – for the team championship.
What does this have to do with politics you ask? Everything – A Presidential race is not much different. We are at a point in the race where some contenders can’t win and it is time to take one for the team.
We have 4 Racers in the challenge Santorum, Romney, Gingrich, and Paul and 1 Team the GOP, the problem right now is nobody wants to take one for the team.
And while GOP contenders are busy smearing one another, throwing dirt on one another, and fighting senseless trench warfare on one another Obama has an easy game.
For the sitting president this election is like a 90yard rush into the end zone, touchdown included, with no defensive line there to try and block him.
All he has needed to do is sit back and quietly plan his strategy, and thanks to the ridiculous amount of GOP Debates he knows perfectly well what their strategy is.
And not only that:
Obama also places laws prohibiting every citizen from protesting against him without GOP candidates even reacting.
Obama Mocks the GOP contenders on gasoline prices – with no backtalk whatsoever (Watch the YouTube Video here)
Sends his VP Joe Biden into election mode spreading the word that the GOP has no clue about the middle class (of course in front of a crowd where the dinner cost $ 10,000 a plate).
And the list just continues.
Voters and activists
In the 2010 Midterm election we all stood together, tall and united, knowing what was at stake.
But just like the candidates, the Voters are back where they were in 2008; everybody against everybody and no shoulder-to-shoulder standing whatsoever.
When I look at my network and read the comments I actually want to cry.
I can’t vote for Santorum because………..
I can’t vote for Romney because……..
I can’t Vote for Gingrich or Paul because……………..
He is a RINO, he is big Government, no he is not a RINO, no he is not Big Government, bla, bla, bla – it makes me sick.
My favorite line is: I can’t vote for either and before I vote for the second best I would rather not vote at all. Now this one really makes me sick.
EVERY VOTE NOT PLACED IS A VOTE FOR OBAMA
IF YOU DON’T VOTE YOU DON’T HAVE ANY RIGHT TO COMPLAIN
Here is a little lesson in political reality. My favorite candidate would be Lt. Col. Ret. Congressman Allen West of Florida, but he won’t run.
And since politics is not a “musical request program”, and unless anyone of the voters out there has the magic “Jeannie in the Bottle” that can bring the perfect candidate with a blink of her eye we all have to face reality, and pick one that is there.
And that brings me to the candidates
Who is left in the pool of candidates some like, some don’t. Nevertheless it is the best we’ve got right now and the true agenda in “The most important election in America’s history” is to kick Obama out, PERIOD.
Here is my question to the contenders (or some of them): Why do you run in the first place?
a) You run because you are truly interested in saving America
Then it is time to face political reality. Re-evaluate your chances by reality and not mathematical possibility and do the right thing.
Maybe you want to take from the example of Governor Rick Perry (R-TX), who was humble enough to know he is not going to win and took “one for the team”.
b) You run because you are probably at an age where you think this is your last chance to gain the highest Office in the Country if not in the world
Then you better get out of the way. Your knuckle-biting does not serve anybody but Obama. This is not the time for personal conceitedness. We already have a self-absorbed narcissist in the office.
Where do we stand?
Whether you like it or not the fact is, based on delegate count, this has become a two-man-race between Mitt Romney (496) and Rick Santorum (236), with Newt Gingrich (141) and Ron Paul (66) pulling up the rear.
I was pretty much one of the first that brought up Newt Gingrich for President in 2011.
But I also was excited about Rick Perry, Michelle Bachmann, and not to mention that I was still praying for Lt. Col. Ret. Congressman West to reconsider and run. Reality speaks a different language and I have had have to face it too.
No matter where you stand on any candidate, the chances for Gingrich or Paul to still win the primaries are less than slim.
Ron Paul had his fun, and everybody agrees that some of his plans are absolutely the best choice for America. Bring our troops home, stop spending money on Wars we have no business being in, and keep our Money at home. But also some of his ideas are, well let’s say a good comedy. End the war on drugs by legalizing them? Give me a break.
He can’t win, that is also a fact. For a smart man like Congressman Paul it is time to endorse one of the front-runners and start supporting him.
Newt Gingrich had 2 resurrections already, but based on the recent numbers the chance of a third is dismal. He lost as a southerner in the Deep South against “Yankee” Santorum. That should be a message.
Another fact is that every political analyst from USA today to the Tea Party economist agrees that neither Newt Gingrich nor Rick Santorum can win if they both continue to stay in the race, BUT – together they can beat Obama.
Rick Santorum already mentioned that he would consider Newt Gingrich as Vice President. So – where is the problem Mr. Gingrich?
Be a sport, be humble like Perry and take one for the team, take one FOR AMERICA
This is a win-win situation for all of us. Gingrich gets his place in the white House, he can take on sleeping disorder VP Joe Biden, and battle him in debates, coach Rick Santorum to beat Obama in debates, while sharing with Santorum his profound knowledge and experience, and together fight for a renewed America.
That way we can make this what it already is – a two-man race between Santorum and Romney, and then the voters decide once and for all.
Meanwhile Newt Gingrich can start taking on Obama and his policies at every turn in order to prevent Obama from spreading his election message un-challenged.
And finally, (I’m almost begging here) close the frontline against our combined enemy Obama.
Candidates, Voters, Activist
This is a message to both, the candidates and the voters.
Stop smearing, whining, and nagging and acting like a spoiled 5 year old brat – or BOTH OF YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANOTHER 4 YEARS OF OBAMA FASCISM WITH ONLY YOURSELF TO BLAME
We can’t always have what we want, but we have one combined goal and that is SAVING AMERICA FROM OBAMA or see AMERICA GO ALL THE WAY DOWN
And I said it before and say it again to the Voters – you might not like the current choice, but the only other choice is 4 more years of Obama. So
FACE THE DAM REALITY AND VOTE
FOR THE MOST AMAZING SHINING CITY ON THE HILL
AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL

March 5, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – While Pepsi has been in the spotlight lately for contracting with a company that uses cells originally derived from an aborted fetus in flavor research, it’s not the only company that pro-lifers should think about boycotting for such unethical practices, reports the National Catholic Register.
Rebecca Taylor, a Technologist in Molecular Biology, has compiled a list of companies that use cells and tissues derived from aborted babies to develop their products, which range from childhood vaccines to cosmetics. Her list includes one English company, ReNeuron, which has applied for clinical trials in the United States.
Here are the companies, with their contact information. To find out more about how these companies use cells derived from aborted fetuses, read the piece at the National Catholic Register.

Views on Conservatism
By Lara Maertens Rhea
What does it mean to be Ms. Texas Conservative US 2012? I get asked this a lot. Why do women want to be in beauty pageants anymore? Don’t they insult or demean us? Since I am a writer, most notably a political speech writer, I decided to write an article about this issue. Primarily, I wanted to use this opportunity to talk about the stereotypes of women in pageants, in politics, and discuss a little bit about what Conservatism means to me. I hope it provides some insight into the minds of women like myself.
First of all, everyone understands what a beauty pageant is, but not many people understand that contestants use the notoriety of their position to gain awareness to a specific platform or cause for which they hold certain interests. In this case, the issue is Conservatism. Some people think it’s hollow to use women in swimsuits to bring attention to a political movement; however, the reverse is really true in this case. We are bringing attention to the fact that women in swimsuits, attractive women in general, are smart enough and strong enough to understand and care about political issues. We are proud American women who love God, our country, and our families, and we are unafraid to speak out about our beliefs. We feel we have something important to say about where we feel the country is headed and we are willing to be leaders and examples to others, often educating others on what it means to be a Conservative and what they can do to help steer our country in a better direction. We are tired of the stereotypes attached to women like Sarah Palin, who was a beauty queen and therefore treated by the media as a bimbo. There are many others, who are labeled as “too pretty to be taken seriously.” Michele Bachmann has been given the same treatment. Like their politics or not, the fact that people, especially other women, engage in tearing down these strong, independent women is a slap in the face to all of us. We should be proud that these women are great mothers, strong leaders, and represent what we should all aspire to be. Their looks should never be discussed as they go about trying to secure certain jobs in politics, anymore than the size of your rear should enter in to whether or not you are qualified to do your job, but because there is an underlying assumption by most that attractiveness or beauty equates to stupidity, sadly it probably always will. I heard someone talking about Michele Obama’s rear-end the other day, and it infuriated me. Again, like her or not, the obsession about her looks is unfair and wrong. Any of these women can take hits on their politics or job performance, but how do you fight against “her butt is so big” or “her hair is too long?” The comments and the people making them are shallow, not the women trying to defend them…………………………..

The Florida Primary is over; Mitt Romney won over Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum with Ron Paul coming in last.
When listening to the conservative Tea Party Network and knowing that over 150 Tea Party organizations supported Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, and that they both had support from the most conservative leaders in America it really makes me wonder how could a Mitt Romney victory happen?
But the main question is was this really a victory of the voters or was this a GOP establishment manipulated primary?
The best election money can buy as PJ Tatler on Pajamas media calls it.
Ever since the Midterm elections of 2010, a broad front of conservative voters united under a group called “The Tea Party”. They wanted to take the Grand Ol’ party back from the establishment, renew the conservative cause we once so proudly defended, and kick the RINO’s out of power. Successfully, we showed the GOP what true conservative voters are capable of when we helped them take back the House of Representatives – Something the odds were against.
However, since the GOP likes to go along to get along they want to silence the Tea Party in order to maintain their established power.
Grand Ol’ Party – Once the flag ship for Christian conservative values, honesty, integrity, limited government, and power through WE THE PEOPLE. It represented the “American Dream” of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness – NOT ANYMORE.
The GOP today is diversity preaching and engaged in all sorts of foul play just like the Liberals to hold on to their power. It’s a tug of war in the same mud. They no longer care about the voice of the people, the voters; they just care about keeping the status quo and keeping the “establishment” in tact. It’s no wonder why WE THE PEOPLE have lost all confidence and trust in our so-called representation.
And yet the answer to right the ship is so simple. Stop being politicians and start being Statesman again. Stand up for less government and fiscal responsibility no matter what the cost, and keep your word.
However, instead of seizing the momentum of The Tea Party to strengthen the Republican Party so that Obama can be defeated the GOP does the opposite – THEY DECLARE WAR on their base the true conservative American voters.
THEY DECLARE WAR ON US – THEIR VOTERS and SUPPORTERS – UNBELIEVABLE
Instead of uniting the Conservatives and independents under one flag by working with them they divide the Conservative base even more, playing right in the hands of the Democrats – and for what?
Rush Limbaugh proved in ‘Real Clear Politics’ that the GOP’s joined forces with The New York Times declaring War on its own voters.
Limbaugh on Real Clear Politics: Bill Kristol on the Tea Party: “It’s an infantile form of conservatism.” Scott Reed, veteran strategist and lobbyist: “I think it’s waning now,” talking to the reporter of the story about the Tea Party’s influence. “Party leaders have managed to bleed some of the anti-establishment intensity out of the movement, Reed said, by slyly embracing Tea Party sympathizers in Congress, rather than treating them as ‘those people.’ Did he mean to say that the party was slowly co-opting the Tea Partiers? ‘Trying to,’ Reed said. ‘And that’s the secret to politics: trying to control a segment of people without those people recognizing that you’re trying to control them.’” This is a Republican consultant talking about how to neutralize the Tea Party. (Continue reading and watch the Video here)
Bottom Line is….
The GOP does not want a true conservative President in 2012. A true conservative President running on the principles of “Reagan Conservatism” for limited Government, Constitutional America, fewer regulations, less Taxes, and more power back to “We the people” would cramp their style.
The GOP wants a GOP puppet like John Boehner, who became Speaker of the House with help from the Tea Party (that we were good enough for), but as soon as he held the hammer in his hand he became a good GOP soldier representing power preservation, backdoor deals, and the betrayal of principles rather than standing up for true conservatism.
GOP Establishment/Elite (RINO’s) vs. Tea Party
The GOP establishment complains that grassroots Conservatives call them RINO’s (Republicans In Name Only) – Well, what else do you call people who “claim” to hold to conservative principles while running for office, but as soon as they’re elected they play “flip flop-balancing act politics” betraying and selling out everything the people believe in.
They add insult to injury by calling their own voter base “Grass Root Radicals”. And the GOP wonders why they lose elections.
Just take 2008 presidential candidate John McCain – He is the perfect example of a fence riding RINO that I can possibly think of.
McCain even dared to attack the Republican Tea Party Base as “Hobbits”.
Well, here is a message to Mr. McCain: The hobbits were the hero’s in the movie “Lord of the Rings” and typified the little underestimated underdog that conquers the big overpowering evil with determination and bravery, never abandoning the path of honor and faith.
Next time you want to insult “Us” Senator McCain – First get your facts straight or at least watch the movie. I am proud to be a hobbit.
And that is why the GOP prefers a Mitt Romney over a Newt Gingrich or a Rick Santorum. Romney is the perfect presidential version of John Boehner. A true party soldier who will make sure that he will not forget those who helped him into office, and I’m not talking about the voters I’m talking about the GOP.
Newt Gingrich IS a walking hand grenade for the GOP Establishment (and I say that with the highest respect) because he does not cater to them or their distortion of facts. He wants to change the establishment not preserve it, heeding the will of the people, and proving he is not a party soldier, but a leader – And that is NOT what the GOP establishment wants.
Rick Santorum is considered to be the “most conservative,” but has nowhere near the experience nor the record of achievements that Gingrich has to really threaten the GOP. And in my opinion, the GOP is giving Santorum just enough money to keep him in the race in order to derail Gingrich and assure Romney the victory.
Romney vs. Gingrich
After his victory in Florida Romney declared he wants to unite the GOP. How does he want to unite what he, together with the Party have previously divided through trench warfare?
Does he really think he can first artillery everything we believe in and then just miraculously say, oh now it’s over, and we are all one big happy family?
2012 Presidential election
If the GOP continues to fight against their base instead of listening to them this will be the last election for the GOP as a grand old party.
The call for a third party, widely ignored the past 3 years, becomes louder and louder. We are fed up that the elite think they can rule over our head. We are fed up with being treated like stubborn dumb children.
Let me make this clear Mr. Preibus, Chairman of the GOP:
YOU AND THE ELITE DO NOT OWN THE PARTY – WE THE REPUBLICAN VOTERS DO
And the winner is……
….Barrack Hussein Obama and the Democratic Party. The GOP financed trench warfare only plays into the hands of the radical fascist Obama regime. All they need to do is sit back and watch how we maul each other.
In 2010 we gave the GOP a chance to prove that they could do more than give lip service… They failed.
All they needed to do was keep their promises and work WITH us and not AGAINST us… They failed.
Let’s hope and pray that at least the Tea Party voters can look beyond the polls, take one for the team, and vote for whom we really think can kick Obama out of office.
And maybe after 2012 start a third party – a true conservative TEA PARTY OF WE THE CONSTITUIONALIST PEOPLE
For God and Country, and the most amazing City on the Hill
THE UNITED STATES OF A FREE REPUBLIC AMERICA

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last
With the world on the brink of a new war with Iran and with a half a dozen other Muslim countries posturing against Israel, and shouting death to the West, Obama has announced his new military strategy: NDAA Act H.R. 1540 – Military cuts.
Since the Arab Spring started many conservative Bloggers and columnists warned about the danger of the radical “Muslim Brotherhood” emerging to power all over the Muslim dominated world from Northern Africa to the Middle East.
These warnings have been widely ignored. On the contrary, left wing biased mainstream Media, always good for diversity preaching and ignoring facts, not only ignored, but on top of that covered up obvious signs of radicalism within this grouping (Middle Eastern Forum – Muslim Brotherhood Declares ‘Mastership of World’ as Ultimate Goal).
The Governmental officials even went a step further in cooperation with Muslim interest groups such as CAIR, Muslim Brotherhood USA, ACLU, and similar affiliated radical groups, by trying to stop conservative bloggers and columnists from showing the truth and the reality of this situation.
The last idea was a summit held by the U.S. State department with radical Muslim organizations to dismantle the 1st Amendment rights and produce a law that would outlaw any anti-Islam and Islam affiliated publishing as inflammatory speech.
And if that isn’t bad enough Obama and his “Muslim bowing” goonies did, and still do, continue to endorse the Muslim Brotherhood calling upon the world to give this “Secular” organization a chance – Secular – sure, like the Pope is not Catholic.
Sometimes I’m not sure if it’s pure ignorance, stupidity, incompetency, or worse, by design, but the facts are there and this is a nightmare for Israel, caused by the Obama administration in cooperation with the UN and European Union.
But history has shown that no fascist government can avoid the truth long term. And this time the truth and the facts have already hit us square in the face.
As Newsmax reports:
3. Muslim Brotherhood Deputy: We’ll Cancel Israel Treaty
The deputy leader of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has called Israel a “criminal enemy” and threatened to cancel the Israel-Egypt peace treaty.
In an interview with the Arabic daily al-Hayat, Dr. Rashad Bayoumi was asked if the government of Egypt is required to recognize Israel. He responded: “This is not an option. Whatever the circumstances, we do not recognize Israel at all. It’s an occupying criminal enemy.”
He said no Muslim Brotherhood member will ever negotiate with Israelis: “I will not allow myself to sit down with criminals.”
He also said the Brotherhood would take legal action toward canceling the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel that was signed in 1979.
“The Brotherhood respects international conventions, but we will take legal action against the peace treaty with the Zionist entity,” he said in the interview.
The Muslim Brotherhood won 36.3 percent of the vote in the second round of Egyptian elections, while the ultra-conservative Salafi al-Nour Party received 28.8 percent, according to the Jerusalem Post.
Egyptians are voting for a parliament that will help draft a new constitution following the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year regime.
Bayoumi, a Cairo University professor, has served as the Brotherhood’s Deputy General Guide.
Iran, Egypt, Syria, and Tunisia – all of those countries don’t seem to have anything to do with each other and the mainstream media, in compliance with the Obama administration, want to tell us that these are isolated incidents and occurrences, but they are not.
This is just more of a joint effort by radical Muslims to destroy Israel and Western Civilization in order to have a one world under Allah.
How are they connected?
Is an isolated Country under a radical leader and controlled by the Mullah’s who hold most of the oil in that region. President Ahmendinejad has on several occasions made it clear that the true “goal of a Muslim is the martyrdom” and he is determined to “wipe Israel off the face of the earth”.
And while the whole world is whining about whether Iran does, or does not have the nuclear capability for a nuclear weapon the truth is this entire issue is nothing but a diversion from the bigger picture. Iran already has enough conventional rocket missiles to attack Israel and Europe at the same time.
And the Europeans, who now behave like cowards, in cooperation with the UN will do anything to please Iran even if that means destroying Israel.
This was mostly controlled by the Muslim brotherhood doing the smartest thing they could do… Stand down, not to appear too public, and wait until the whole civil war was over in order to take the victory.
Their passiveness blindfolded the western countries under the leadership of the worlds #1 do-gooder, the UN, who immediately jumped in to rescue the poor and oppressed protesters demanding only one thing, democracy.
Democracy – my butt, the Muslim Brotherhood has picked up the pieces and is now in the process of controlling all those countries with Sharia Law. Which brings me right to…………….
Job well done Mr. Obama. We all are d’accord that Mubarak was a dictator and needed to go, but instead of replacing this Dictator with a Western and America-friendly Israeli accepting new Government, you, the UN, and the EU allowed for the uncontrolled riots to rage hailing them as democracy building.
And the result is: The Muslim Brotherhood is now the most powerful force. American and Israeli flag burning protests are occurring (isn’t that nice – first we “Free” those jerks and then they show their gratitude by burning our flags and protesting against us) and now MB announces that they are going to nullify the Peace treaty with Israel.
Democracy the wrong way – asking the declared enemy, radical Muslims and Nazi hatemonger’s, if they want peace.
Again Mubarak was a dictator and needed to go, but he also was the guarantor of the peace treaty with Israel.
“President” Assad is, just like Mubarak, a tyrant and a dictator, and sooner or later needs to go, BUT he is also the guarantor of the Weapons-hold-Status with Israel. And you cannot count on the UN peacekeeping force (UNDOF – United Nations Disengagement Observer Force) because as the name already says this is an observer force with “pack and retreat” orders as soon as shots are fired.
But again WARNING – the so called Democracy protesters in Syria are just like in Egypt under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood who again, just like in Egypt, does not appear publically because they’re waiting for the western do-gooder to clean up the mess for them so they can pick up the victory.
As soon as Assad falls the MB will take over and Iran will be right on Israel’s doorstep with nobody stopping them.
PLO (there is no Palestine)
With over 7 Million Palestinians surrounding Israel in Lebanon, Syria, Gaza, West-Jordan Land, and Jordan itself the weak PLO interim government is just about to bring Hamas back into it.
Now, it is not rocket science to know that Hamas is not only supported, but also financed by Iran and has, just like Iran, sworn an oath never to accept Israel, but destroy Israel.
United States under Obama
And what is America’s answer to these threats? Well, Obama is doing what Obama always does, he bows to the Muslims and his Czars from Eric Holder all the way down the list to try and destroy freedom of speech. Wanting to make any criticism of Muslims a “hate-crime” law with NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act for 2012).
This act would cut military spending and allow arrests to take place without proper procedure turning America into an Obama-fascist state.
On the brink of a Muslim uprising and world war he is cutting our Armed Forces.
Is this strategic idiocy or purely on purpose to force Israel, by blackmail, back into the Borders of 1967? This is after all what Obama wanted all along plus it gives the Palestinians what they want – A hatemonger country ready and willing to deal Israel the final deathblow.
There is not much to conclude here, since even a blind person (except of course left wing liberal democrats fascists and diversity-dreamers) can see the boiling point.
Make up your own mind about this, but the evidence is there. My prayers are with Israel and my support as well.

Zipping through European Newspapers, I came across some articles in Austria’s largest newspapers, Kronen Zeitung and Die Presse.
“Kronen Zeitung” Headlines “Palästinenser-Chef Mahmoud Abbas in Wien zu Gast“, Newspaper “die Presse“ even goes a step further and headlines “Palästinenser Präsident Abbas besucht Wien“ when translated means Palestinien President Abbas visits Vienna.
The question here is what President of what country? But that is not all of what really bothers me. What really got me thinking and writing this article is the way Mahmoud Abbas is being treated in Vienna.
Palestinien Leader Abbas visit in Vienna
Mr. Abbas arrived on Monday, November 28, 2011, in Vienna and was treated and granted rights in international protocol only reserved for a recognized leader.
Welcomed at Vienna Airport he was given full Military honors (An international diplomatic protocol that is usually reserved for heads of State) by Austria’s President Heinz Fischer of the Socialist Party of Austria (SPOE) and a vowed atheist.
The display of military honors is not what really made this visit so interesting. What made this visit and the treatment of Mr. Abbas interesting is what came after that.
Austria recognizes Palestine through the backdoor
President Fischer sure went too far on that day. In order to prove to the world once again its love affair with terrorist nations, President Fischer elevated Palestinian representation into an Embassy and therefore granted the Palestinian representation in Vienna the full honors of a “recognized Country”.
“Embassies in a foreign country are sovereign territory of the holding nation. For example, if you visit the U.S. Embassy in Vienna, the moment you enter the gate you leave Austria and enter the sovereign territory of the United States of America”.
President Fischer declared that this move was more of a symbolic gesture, but that is exactly the point.
Since May of 2011 Austria holds a permanent seat on the most powerful UN organization called, “UN Humans rights council” and on top of that is, next to New York (U.S.A.) and Geneva (Swiss), this is the third UN Headquarters and it also has influence.
Austria was also one of the leading nations that, against the European Union policy, lobbied in favor of an acceptance of Palestine at the UN.
President Fischer was right when he said this move was a symbolic move because it was a clear message to be directed towards the UN and the United States that Palestine is to be accepted.
And though Austria is a very tiny little country it does have (based on its balancing-act politics and love affair with Muslim countries as well as its close ties to former Soviet Union countries) a great portion of influence.
President Fischer message to Israel
Where Austria officially stands was publically shown after the final press conference.
Mr. Abbas’ visit to Austria was not just by coincident. He came right after visiting the, in Cairo exile living radical Hamas leader, “Khaled Mashal”. And he brought great news from the radical terrorist Organization Hamas.
- Mr. Abbas once again claims that Palestine rejects all forms of violence
Sure, and the suicide bombers are ghosts; the bombs and rocket missiles are fired miraculously by themselves and this is all a big misinterpretation.
- Hamas wants to contribute to calm the situation with Israel
And the jokes just keep coming. I never knew Hamas had a sense of humor.
First, how about Hamas stops sending suicide terrorists to Israel and stop murdering innocent Israeli civilians
- For the first time Hams has agreed that resistance has to be a peaceful
Now that part made me laugh. For a moment I thought I read a comedy script.
I guess the Palestinian Ideology of a peaceful resistance is buying more bombs and rocket launchers, and rocket missiles, sending more suicide Terrorists against Israel, adding more fuel to the tensions between the new Muslim leadership in Egypt against Israel, and increasing the terror worldwide to gain momentum.
- And they would accept a Palestine within the borders of 1967 (Obama’s dream)
Sure, and Santa Claus comes together with the Easter bunny. That would endanger Israel’s security to the point of complete defenselessness and destruction. Besides, since when do Terrorists dictate the conditions?
Somebody needs to tell those Terrorists that before there can be any negotiation they have to stop firing missiles against Israel and stop sending suicide bombers which murder innocent civilians.
- Of course no words on acceptance of Israel
Of course not.
Mr. Fischer, of course, jumped right into that ship demanding from Israel to return to the tables of negotiations and stop “provocating” Palestine.
Well, Mr. Fischer should get his act together and information better sourced. The provocations always come from the Palestinians through bombings and terror attacks and ISRAEL HAS THE RIGHT TO DEFEND ITSELF.
Austria is an amazing country.
It has some marvelous scenic views from the alps in the west to the hills in the east, its almost 2,000 year old recognized historical and cultural heritage is a treasure and the people themselves, completely dissatisfied with their government, are some of the nicest and most cozy people I know – but their official representation and government is for the birds.
Some might say that Austria is too small to cause damage in the world, but Austria can be a thorn in the flesh when it starts using its economical and political influence.
Today, I am a proud American by the courtesy of the INS and a proud Texan by the grace of God Almighty.
My suggestion to the people of my birth country, Austria, “Get rid of those politicians they are taking you over the edge”.
To the official Austria – Stop sleeping with Dogs and start looking for new friends because the days of the Terrorist lover Obama are numbered and then blows a new political wind in the world and that wind does not negotiate with Terrorists and stands by Israel no matter what.
God bless ya’ll and God bless America
Once upon a time – there used to be a time of manners, and media responsibility where certain lines were not crossed.
A time of politeness and chivalry, where standard, and even politically opposing Talk-show-hosts were gentlemen.
Political candidate have been attacked on issues, programs, and personal failures such as out of marriage affairs or law violations, but like I said before there was a line that was respected – the line of common courtesy and good social manners.
THOSE TIMES ARE OBVIOUSLY OVER
NBC’s late night Talker, Jimmy Fallon, has just gone too far with his insults to conservative candidates when he welcomed Congresswoman Michelle Bachman (R-Minnesota) as a guest on his show and then his band sucker punched her by serenading “Lyin’ Ass Bitch” as reported by Jon Nolte from Big Hollywood @ Andrew Breitbart.TV reports.
Jimmy Fallon is known as a liberal and an Obama supporter. In August he attended a $35,800 Obama fundraiser.
In the good old days of gentlemen style TV the Station itself punished comments or insults like this and the station issued apologies taking the talk show host off the air. These days the stations defend this behavior with “freedom of speech”.
The new rule is: “grill and humiliate Republicans”, treat “Democrats with Respect” and “lick Obama’s boots”.
Freedom of Speech
Liberals and freedom of speech is an interesting concept.
In liberal minds that means: they are entitled to say and do what they want, insult, disrespect, attack below the belt, and get way out of line whenever it serves their agenda.
It’s only when conservatives take it upon themselves to address the issue, and without foul language I might add, that liberals seem to get a little touchy on the subject.
In Liberal La-la brains freedom of expression is a One-Way-Street only allowed in their direction and allowed when supporting their agenda.
Everything that contradicts their agenda is subject to brutal violent attacks all the way to personal threats.
This is not the first attack below the belt on a conservative candidate and it appears to be that since Obama took office these radical morons have become more and more a standard rather than the exception. And it all started with Obama running for office.
Democrats under Obama and why the GOP is at fault as well
It all started with insults on Sarah Palin during the presidential race in 2008 when Rahm Emanuel called Sarah Palin’s baby, suffering from Down syndrome, “retarded” and Democrats attacked her daughter for her pregnancy.
If one was waiting for Presidential frontrunner John McCain to step up in anger and defend the Palin Family you waited in vain.
Neither McCain or Obama, ever stepped up saying enough is enough and the family is off limits.
This was the beginning of a whole new meaning of “Dirty Campaigning”. BHO made it very clear that he is only stepping in when it comes to conservative opposition, but when it comes to his campaign supporters and big time donors, allies such as ultra liberal talk show hosts, and radical Union leaders he remains silent and does not want to be the speech police – Such hypocrisy.
No matter if it is “Jon Stewart” mocking Marcus Bachmann and making inappropriate comments about the sexual life of the Bachmann’s or if it is Obama’s best friend and Teamster “Jimmy Hoffa II.” Calling Tea partiers “SOB’s, this pattern is still continuing.
What is interesting is that the son of a criminal mobster and gangster who got what he deserved (concrete boots and a dive in east river), has the guts to call my momma, who may not be an American citizen, but has always been an honorable woman, raising two great kids, and working all her life for the Austrian federal government, a bitch.
Who is the SOB now?
Let’s not forget Bill Maher – A man who pays his women by the hour – his distasteful sexual comments on conservative contenders.
Jimmy Fallon was only one in a line of radical “so called” comedians and talk show hosts. This coward didn’t even have the guts to do this directly; he had his band do it.
And that is not the end of it. Believe me there is a lot more to come.
And don’t expect the NY Times or the Washington Post to comment or condemn this. They are all bribed by the Obama administration. The NY Times is the only Newspaper still defending the “Occupy movement”. And that tells you everything.
Those flea beggars fit in the line of the liberal outcast mouthpiece
What can we do?
I asked, why it is the fault of the GOP as well? Here is the answer.
Basically, there is nothing we can do. Sure, we can stop watching those liberal media outlets, as I do, boycott or jam their phone lines, fax and email them with protest letters, but bottom line is this: As long as our politicians don’t step up and hammer the stations with protests, demanding an apology, and as long as Obama refuses to step up and call his dogs back those liberal outcast stations live under the impression that it is perfectly ok to hit below the belt.
That might sound crazy because my heart says get out and beat the living daylights out of those idiots, but I am trying hard to be mature.
Send letters to Congresswoman Bachman and let her know how much we support her. It does not matter if you support her as a presidential candidate or not, but she IS one of us and she IS an honorable woman and we need to let her know that we do not tolerate this behavior, and that she has our compassion as woman and as conservative, and send the same letters to NBC and all the other idiotic stations telling them “Your time will come”.
God bless you and
God Bless America
